Let’s give it to the mother’s in all of our lives. Make this Mother’s Day memorable and one-of-a-kind just like your mom is to you.

They are our providers, supporters, pushers and our go-to protectors in this glorious life.

Mother’s Day gifting can be such a head scratcher. What do you gift the best woman in your life? How can you forever thank her for what she does in ONE day designated for her? It’s time to step up the gifting process for the woman who taught you how to tie your shoes and say how much she means to you beyond perfume and lovely flowers. Here is the gift guide for being original and finding a unique product that will have your mama saying, “thank you” rather than “you’re welcome”!

Here are a few shell bag she’ll love.

#100 The Times Collection Shell . It’s chic, it’s classic, and it’s what she can match with everything.

Bison Leather Shell Bag . The most edgy, glam, and super luxe of the shells we offer. Available both in black and brown trim, it’s a showstopper, just like she is.

The Standard Shell Bag . It’s a size smaller from our top selling #100 dimension, but brings all the same aesthetic and shape as the bigger. It’s the oringial shell

Happy Early Mother’s Day to all the wonderful mothers out there!

Duluth Pack customer meet your craftsperson, craftsperson meet your customer!

At Duluth Pack, our sewers, cutters & riveters take unbelievable pride in their artwork and craftsmanship. You won’t find a more talented and dedicated group of artists who care more about perfecting their work. This is why with every handmade Duluth Pack product, you can find the sewer’s name right on the tag. It’s not quality assurance – it’s loving what you do and loving what you make.

You’ve been curious. We know it. Don’t deny. We can almost smell the sense of curiosity. It’s now that time when Duluth Pack is introducing the hardworking employees behind its quality products. Duluth Pack’s craftspeople take so much pride in what they create, that they actually came up with the concept of personally signing each and every bag they produce. Want to know where to find the signature of the sewer who handcrafted your bag just for you? 1) Flip over the “Made in America” tag to find the craftsperson’s signature. 2) Meet them with THIS link. P.s. you can even write them a letter to thank them!

Here it is. Plain, simple, and to the point. This is Duluth Pack’s Motto: T.E.A.M. Together Everyone Achieves More! What is the significance behind this quote and what does its involvement mean with this particular blog post today? A LOT!

Here at Duluth Pack we are more than just employees, we’re a team, and ultimately a family. May seem cliche and hey, even slightly corny, but it’s the utter most truth. This segment is about you all getting to know Duluth Pack beyond just the canvas and leather products. It’s time to meet the hard working people behind the packs who handcraft day in and day out the products you purchase!

We’ve asked questions regarding the company, favorite Duluth Pack product, and yes, even the personal mush gush questions that every one is always a little curious about knowing, even if they won’t admit it at first. So, without a further a do, here are some of the women and men who make up the Duluth Pack team. (And please feel free to give anyone of them a hard time for their guilty pleasure!) .

Everything makes a comeback at some point and wool is certainly here to stay for good. Duluth Pack’s Classic Buffalo Check Plaid has been the hot seller this past year and we don’t see it stopping anytime soon in the future. Whether you’re speed walking in the crowded streets of New York City, sipping on drinks at a local eatery in Los Angeles, or complimenting your layered outfit in Minneapolis, Duluth Pack is sure to be the best accessory. Forewarning, you will get complimented, so be prepared! The wool material is from the established Woolrich brand and radiates an instant cool vibe with the one-of-a-kind detailing and craftsmanship you expect from Duluth Pack. In multiple styles, bags, and unique designs, it’s sure to please the eyes (and even your wallet!).

Due to the high demand and requests, we have recently launched new styles in the classic wool pattern. Check out the new designs right here .
